South Africa Student Adventure


Tuesday, June 9, 2009

Today we visited boulder beach. It is a natural habitat for the south african penguin. It also called the jackass penguin because of the donkey like sounds it makes. After 30 or so minutes of observation we headed to SANCCOB, a penguin rehabilitation center. There we went hands on, and I found a soul mate! Rocky, a rock hopper penguin, had caught my eye. Rocky looks exactly like those off of Happy Feet! He is not native to South Africa so he can't be released. At this point in his life he has become pretty well tamed. I offered to help out and take him.....good luck gettin that across customs!
